Plymouth 400

Plymouth has a thriving arts community– just last month the Town of Plymouth received a Commonwealth Award for our Creative Community! (You can check out the full gallery of photos from the Commonwealth Awards at the State House here.) 
Today we’re joining Americans for the Arts, a nonprofit created “to serve, advance, and lead the network of organizations and individuals who cultivate, promote, sustain, and support the arts in America” is leading the charge in supporting arts organizations across the country!
Here’s what Americans for the Arts says about National Arts Advocacy Day:
Today, Americans for the Arts and its affiliate the Arts Action Fund celebrate National Arts Advocacy Day, part of the National Arts Action Summit, with thousands of arts advocates across the country and hundreds of partnering state, local and national arts and arts education organizations.
Join us by letting your member of Congress know that you support the arts!
Today, more than 550 dedicated arts supporters from 48 states will come together in Washington, DC for the 28th annual Arts Advocacy Day, the only national event that brings together a broad cross section of America’s cultural and civic organizations.  
Participating in events are actor and Turnaround Artist Doc Shaw; actress, writer, dancer and Americans for the Arts Artists Committee Member Victoria Rowell, American actress and playwright Holland Taylor, musicians Marc Roberge and Richard On from the American rock band O.A.R, and singer and performer Grace Weber.
These hundreds of arts advocates represent a united effort to tell Capitol Hill how important the arts are to our communities, how much arts education means to our future, and how the arts improve our daily lives. With 87 national cosponsoring organizations, Arts Advocacy Day helps shape this united arts message to Congress.
Ways You Can Take Part:

Visit our E-Advocacy Center, and you’ll be able to send a message in less than two minutes directly to your Representative and Senators telling them why the arts are important to you and your community.
